high with no changes in monetary policy but investors swooped in on those early dips sending the dow into positive territory for a time. wall street's attention later fixated on protests as they used tear gas in istanbul. wall street fluctuated. by the close it tumbled 116 points and the s and p lost 16 points. >> we'll speak with karen, president of metropolitan capital and author of the book about today's markets and more. the senate voted 82-18 to clear the way for formal debate on a massive 900-page measure overhauling the nation's immigration laws. president obama surrounded by business leaders among others sounded optimistic about congress passing the controversial bill soon. >> smarter enforcement, a path
way to earn citizenship, improvements to the legal system. they are all common sense steps. they have got bipartisan support. they have got the support of a broad cross section of leaders from every walk of life, so there is no reason congress can't get this done by the end of the systummer. >> one of the business leaders, a strong supporter of immigration reform. >> it's very important that we continue to be a magnet for talent, that we really become the place that people want to start companies and start industries because that's the best way to drive our economy, economic growth, best way to drive down the unemployment. we got to make sure we're able to attract those risk takers, the pioneers that believe in america as the best in the world. >> our guest was at that event with president obama.
gary loveland is the ceo of cesars entertainment and a member of the business round table lobbying for immigration reform. gary, so nice to have you back on the program. >> pleased to be here, suzy. >> so there has been a lot of anxie anxiety, as you know about immigration reform so why are you in the business round table such big supporters. >> it's good for the broken immigration system and business. the president's proposal and what the senate is considering has three central features, the first to enhance border security meaningfully and deal with the 11 million undocumented immigrants and children who live in the united states today whose circumstances are ill defined and not functional for anyone and rationalize the immigration system. we access the world's greatest talent and bring them here for their best work and for the simple reasons these ideas suggest, it's good for everybody. >> talk to me about a path way to citizen ship, which is part
of the proposed legislation that would involve the 11 million undocumented workers or residents finding a way to -- to get legal here in this country. what should it include in your view? >> the president's proposed that it includes making sure nobody has criminal offenses against them, they can speak english, pay taxes and regular in american life as they petition for inclusion in the queue to move forward towards citizen ship and i think all those standards make sense. the president proposed those folks come in behind the queue that exists for those pursued legal immigration. you can imagine a feathers of those along with those that are moving ahead under the newly propose the mechanism. >> gary, about the economic impact of this. immigration is a problem that has to be fixed, but, you know, what do you say to people who are worried about especially americans out of work who are looking for a job and can't find one and are worried about the economic impact when the economy
is weak with huge deficits? >> that's a little bit of a false concern. i think on the one hand as steve points out, we're losing access to great minds that can help propel it. we have people available to work with today's high unemployment rate and i don't believe the regularization of undocumented folks would led to a substantial supply that would compete for those seeking work here. on the other hand and i think more importantly, suzy, having a regular utilized immigration system will enhance for demands for companies like many and others and the housing market, which is essential to the growth in this country that would led to a better outcome for everyone, including those seeking work. >> what would immigration reform mean to your business? >> it would enhance the demand for those who find their circumstances in this country predictab predictable.
it would lead to invasion for folks staying in this country as steve proposes and in terms of our being able to find the most talented people to serve our guests and drive our country forward, we have better prospects for that as well. on the prospect side and demand side, it's a sound argument. >> gary, thank you for coming on the program. great to have you. >> thank you. small business owners would have a lot riding on new immigration rules, as well and right now they are feeling optimistic. the latest survey shows that small business owners report improvements in outlooks for job openings, capital investment and inventory building. it looks like more american companies plan to hire more workers next quarter, the largest amount of new hires of one quarter in five years according to the manpower group, a global employment service. meanwhile, the labor department says advertised job openings fell 3% in april and the number of americans who quit their jobs
spiked 7% that month but economists see this as a good sign, workers who quit usually do so to get better jobs. a new report from washington's financial watchdog agency says consumers pay more than half of the charges on their checking account fees in the form of overdraft fees. more over, the study found that customers that opt in for overdraft protection paid hundreds more in fees and had their accounts closed more frequently than those who decline it. gala has more on how banks are raking in those fees and what you can do for them. >> reporter: it's that pit in your stomach when you look at the bank statement, that check you wrote was cashed early or the deposit hasn't hit yet, either way that $3 cup of coffee cost you 38 bucks. for more than a year, the consumer financial protection bury is studying this, the way banks charge consumers for overdrawing accounts and how the banks disclose these practices.
